RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

Trying to find out from Visible about data plans for my hot spot. Can't find any contact info any where. How does one go about contacting them? Visible only sells an unlimited voice/text/data phone plan, no data plan for hotspots. Some of us have removed the SIM from our Visible phones and installed them in Verizon compatible hotspots with no complaints from Visible so far. Some are using the Visible SIM in a hotspot with no problem and others have had their accounts canceled. Using a hotspot other than an approved phone is against their terms and conditions. The only way to contact Visible is through the Chat function on the Visible website. Chuck

RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

We have been using the Visible service for a month now alongside a Verizon Mifi with a real unlimited plan that the wife uses for working at home, provided by her employer. The Visible actually has a higher speed than the Verizon service when run through the Ookla speed test. It remains consistently higher no matter what time of the day we run it or what day. Our AT&T plan is all but useless here at or homebase. Chuck

RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

I've read Visible has been cancelling accounts that use the SIM in a different data device such as mobile routers. Maybe the loophole is to use it in a Verizon branded hotspot device? Good thought. I know there are some that have been using a mifi with the Visible sim for some time now with no issues. Chuck

RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

You need to set up the Visible service on a compatible phone using the Visible app. If you choose to move it after that you can. But that is in violation of the terms and conditions and some have had the account canceled after doing this. Others are using a travel router to get around the speed limit and one device limit.

RE: DirecTV Spinoff Announcement

That still leaves AT&T with 70% ownership so I doubt anything will improve. We switched to Dish after 25 years with DirecTV and it has been one of our best decisions. Chuck

RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

Dutch, How long have you been using the SIM in a hotspot? Chuck

Visible Wireless Feedback

I just started using the service and so far so good... I would like to hear from others about how they are finding the service to work? What equipment are you using in your RV with the Visible? What kind of coverage are you getting? What devices are you running with Visible? How are you finding the Visible to work with Streaming? Any other details you would like to pass on? Only looking for feedback from current users please. Chuck

RE: Quarantine for Florida trip?

The problem is you cannot believe the stats everyone is telling you. The figures are grossly inflated. A guy here in Florida was in a motorcycle accident and died. They blamed his death on COVID because he tested positive. This was debunked a long time ago yet people keep spreading misinformation and outright falsehoods. It's no wonder many are really confused about what's going on. If this would stop, we would all be better off. I don't understand how anyone believes this stuff. What would be the purpose of doctors and hospitals doing something like this? Stay off Facebook and reality will eventually sink in. Chuck

RE: Quarantine for Florida trip?

Of course not. FL is free. They reached heard immunlty in August. No spikes down there. If you are sick you will know it, symptoms are like the flu and include bad headache and loss of taste, but check the list as not everyone has every symptom. If you have symptoms you probably will be in bed, thus isolated, not walking about chatting it up with people. Sometimes Dr death fauci says mask work. if you are very sick with it then just wear a mask, and then everyone is safe. Sometimes dr death says mask dont work. But if you listen to him you wont be traveling anyway, you would have killed yourself already. If you need any more information on why this pandemic has reached an unprecedented level in both the number of infected and deaths, all you need to do is read posts from people like this. Fortunately, I believe there are many more informed people on these forums. I just received this email from my local hospital that treated my heart issues. They have already received a shipment of the vaccine, but... Please remain vigilant in helping prevent the spread of the virus There's much to be thankful for these days, including the recent news that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted emergency use authorization for the administration of COVID-19 vaccines. Based on national guidance, receipt of the initial supply of vaccines is being prioritized for those at greatest risk of exposure, including healthcare workers and long-term care facility residents. For now, it is too early to know when we may have additional guidance around vaccine availability for our patients and community. Stay informed about vaccination developments, including those specific to our health network, on our COVID-19 Resource Hub. In the meantime, please continue to take precautions and follow the guidance of your local health department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including wearing a mask, practicing good hand hygiene and maintaining social distancing, to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Thanks for trusting us with your care. Have a safe and happy holiday season! Citrus Internal Medicine Associates

RE: Quarantine for Florida trip?

There are no restrictions in Florida of any kind. The few local "recommendations" are pretty much ignored. Florida and our leaders pretty much have a "let em die" as long as the money keeps coming in attitude. We have been told our population is old so they will die anyway. So your only concern is for your personal safety and what you feel comfortable doing to keep yourself safe. Don't expect masks or social distancing for the most. Here it's business as if there is nothing going on. Chuck Not sure where you live, but here in the Keys you cannot get into any establishment with out a mask and people except for the out of staters and the people from Miami are adhering to it. And as far as taking care of the seniors I guess you have not heard the news (right from the governor) that we will be getting the vaccination even before essential workers. I checked with the Monroe county board of health and and they said yes that it is true and we should be getting an e-mail as soon as it is available. I was going to quote the governors words, but I don't want to start a political war Guy We live in Central Florida. I lived in the Keys for 10 years. It never accepted itself as part of Florida. As far as vaccination for over 65, that is simply the largest voting block in Florida so it will come before our police, EMT's and other essential workers that interact with a large segment of the public. But it is in doubt at this time just how long it will take to actually get the vaccine out to us. Yes, I am over 65 by quite a bit. My point to the OP has been, your concern is not and should not be restrictions or quarantines. It needs to be on taking care of yourself if you plan to come to Florida. Our infections average 10,000 to 13,000 PER DAY and positivity rates average 8 to 10 percent. With no restrictions or guidelines in place and very few practicing social distancing or mask-wearing, you need to be very careful down here. Only you are going to take whatever measures you need to stay safe and healthy. Chuck

RE: Comcast to charge extra for exceeding 1.2 TB data

I see dish got there act together, finally! It wasn't Dish that got their act together, it was Nexstar. They are the ones that ask unreasonable rates to carry their programming. The same stations with other owners never left the Dish lineup. Eventually, they all figure out it is costing them money in advertisers and get reasonable. Chuck

RE: Air Conditioner does not act right "some times"

Our front and rear do the exact same thing. I have replaced the electronics and it did not correct the issue. I recently replaced the thermistor style thermostats with digital ones and the problem has gone away. But we have not used them a lot so time will tell. For years we just never set them to auto and just used the high or low setting. I have hopes this is now resolved. I am pretty sure the issue is not with the AC units themselves. Chuck

RE: Zero-G water hoses

I think some of you are confusing Zero G with other brands of hose. I shop both Lowes and Home Depot and the Zero G hoses sold at both have metal ends. I have never seen Zero G hoses with plastic ends anywhere. Ours is out in the sun all the time here in Florida and shows no signs of deterioration. We use it all the time hooked up to the pressure water at the campsites. The bursting strength on the zero G is 650 PSI. If a campground produces more than that water pressure, there is a serious problem. Ours gets run over by the cars often when stretched across the driveways at home. No issues there either. Chuck

RE: Visible cell provider introducing 5G

It will be years before 5G is available to most of the country, if ever. It doesn't matter who the provider is. Chuck

RE: Latest Dish News Blackout ???

Dish Now Missing 236 Channels Due to Fee Fights. Most aren't worth watching anyway. I haven't missed anything since they dropped a few here in Tampa. They are not missing 236 channels from our available channels. Only about 3. So this headline is very misleading. These channels affect 115 markets or a little more than 2 channels per market on average. Not exactly earth-shattering. Chuck

RE: Latest Dish News Blackout ???

They have done it, my favorite channels now gone off DISH. Thanks Nextel! The only channel blacked out here is WGN, so what, that can keep it. Someone has to attempt to resist the strong arming, which is just for show anyway, as the annual $5 per month increase comes @ March. Here I have lost WGN, they are trying to be another News Station, like we need another, and the local NBC. We don't watch NBC much either. They have become All Reality TV. Unfortunately, we are too far away for OTA. But this too shall pass. We can always switch from Tampa to Orlando and get back all but WGN. Chuck

RE: Latest Dish News Blackout ???

The FCC or Congress could stop these retransmission disputes from using the viewers as hostages by allowing the service providers to use out of market stations during blackouts. :R You do realize that FCC AND Congress ALLOWED this to happen by changing the rules/laws to allow OTA TV stations to DEMAND "payment" to those stations in order for Cable AND Satellite providers to be able to rebroadcast those Stations? Station owners felt they were being "cheated" out of revenue as Cable and Sat markets grew and lobbied to get a ruling in favor of the TV station owners.. Additionally, you do realize that in most areas of the US you CAN also BYPASS the dish or cable and view the OTA channels DIRECTLY without the middle man? Just takes a OTA antenna and flipping your TV to OTA channels.. Not impossible and you WILL get a much better pix in full HD (you only get SD OTA channel quality on Dish).. Not to mention using OTA you get the additional SUBCHANNELS of each OTA broadcast channel.. Dish does not provide those channels and I suspect neither does Direct or most cable systems.. Except for the millions of us that are too far from any broadcasting towers to receive OTA. Chuck

RE: Beware Camco Water Heater Tank Rinser

Try one of these, you'll have to be extremely patient & lucky, but it beats leaving that thing in there. Thanks. I have ordered one of these. Hope it does the job. Chuck

Beware Camco Water Heater Tank Rinser

I bought one of these to clean my hot Water tank. Five seconds after I started, the long tube blew off inside the water heater where it now permanently resides. I don't know what this means for the future of the water heater but would advise others to use extreme caution in using this poorly designed and manufactured device. Chuck
